Patriots WR Julian Edelman expected to play vs. Packers


Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots gestures at the line of scrimmage in the first quarter against the Green Bay Packers during a preseason game at Gillette Stadium on August 13, 2015 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Green Bay vs. New England.

Of course, it specifically focuses on Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. Then he had seven catches for 117 yards and a score in a 26-21 win in the playoffs over the Dallas Cowboys.

Valdes-Scantling could draw another start against the Patriots with Allison listed as doubtful after injuring his groin in practice this week to go with an already sore hamstring.

Needless to say, the Patriots are going to have to put up points. Adrian Clayborn gives the Packers a free five yards with a neutral zone infraction on third down, and Green Bay easily converts on third-and-2. However, the Packers have had just one receiver top 1,000 yards in a season since 2015 (Nelson in 2016), while the Patriots have had four in that time. Can they last another 15 minutes?

"But, I think we have things that we still need to work on and improve, (and) there are some things we do well and we have to keep doing those". They have lost those five games by an average of 11.0 points per game.

To hear the Patriots' coach speak you sure wouldn't know this is a.500 team that has won just twice in the past six games (2-3-1) and is winless (0-3) on the road this year.

Why get rid of someone who is helping make that happen?

"He's going to look to guys who maybe he hasn't looked to as much coming up", Adams said.

Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas will face the team with which he spent his first eight-plus National Football League seasons before being traded to the Texans on Tuesday.

As exciting and entertaining a game as this should be, it's very interesting that the Packers.500 record isn't being brought up more. The two rookies have both showed improvement with each passing week.

"It's a tough stretch, but we have an opportunity to take a big chunk of confidence if we can go up there and play our best game". The only other running back on the roster is Kenjon Barner.

The Packers enter this game having come up a fumble short of potentially defeating the undefeated Rams last week.

The second-year QB failed to throw for 300 or more yards after three straight while finishing with 222, but he had two touchdown passes and no interceptions.

New England led by four at the end of the first.
